Thought I would drop this in here having had power problems on my 905SE. The symptoms were a few intermittent shutdowns before a complete failure to power on.

With a multi meter in hand the search was one - voltage and continuity checks with a fair amount amount of disassembly, but with nothing found. Connectors were pulled and tested. The eventual problem turned out to be wear of the rear of the battery case caused by play between it and the rack rail, leading to a loose connection between battery and controller.
Thought it worth making a note as it may help others save their time in the future. Must remember Occcam's Razor next time out!
